The beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic catalyzed a major shift towards telehealth, where people can access healthcare through telecommunication methods, like video calls. As families stayed home to prevent catching a disease that was largely unknown at the time, many had no choice but to turn to electronic health-related services, among them mental health therapy.
Bilingual speakers make up approximately 43% of the world’s population. It is almost guaranteed that you have previously spoken with someone who is competent in speaking multiple languages. You might wonder, how do they do it so effortlessly? If you have had experiences learning a new language, you know it is the opposite of effortless. The process is painful, exhausting and frustrating—so frustrating that many of us might just give up because there are too many grammar rules to memorize.
What comes to your mind first when you think of wildlife conservation tools? A pair of binoculars for observing distanced large animals? Perhaps a magnifying glass for studying small creatures living on leaves? These are what zoologists and ecologists use when they carry out their studies; but as technology advances, researchers have begun deploying modern technology, namely artificial intelligence (AI), to optimize wildlife conservation.
Brewing with Artificial Intelligence: How Does Technology Breathe New Life into the Coffee Industry?
When it comes to coffee, what pops up in your mind may be a coffee machine that crackles or a coffee cup with your name on it. Regardless, to many of us, artificial intelligence (AI) is not even remotely related to coffee. As irrelevant as they may seem to each other, AI has infiltrated the global coffee supply chain and impressed us with its coffee selection, roasting and pouring abilities.
Interview with Kai.ai’s Founder Alex Frenkel: How AI Can Be a Game Changer in Mental Health Support for Young People
We often have to deal with stress in our everyday life, such as academic studies, work, family or even our romantic relationships. Amid the devastating COVID pandemic, there has been a 25% increase in depression worldwide, especially among young people. In light of this, platforms aiming to improve the mental well-being of adolescents have been emerging, and one of them is Kai.ai.
According to the Ethnologue guide, there are 7,151 spoken languages in the world. While the number might be surprising, did you know that there are also more than 300 sign languages worldwide, with American sign language (ASL) as the most widely used one?
The dark side of the non-fungible tokens (NFTs) market started to reveal itself after NFTs became mainstream last year. Previously, we have explored how the NFT marketplace is riddled with scams, such as artist impersonations and insider trading. Not only have such hoaxes become a big issue for buyers hoping to get their hands on genuine artist works but also for the artists themselves.
By 2030, more than 134 million tons of textiles will be discarded. Yet, the environmental issues and impacts brought about by the textile industry tend to come across as abstract and far away, especially to those living in more developed regions away from manufacturing plants. The reason is simple—out of sight, out of mind.
Before the advent of artificial intelligence (AI), we might never have imagined what the technology could accomplish. But now, as most of us have got the chance to experience the power of AI—be it through talking to voice assistants, like Siri, or enjoying personalized shopping, seeing AI moving forward in the art space is expected.
If you have been to Egypt and visited heritage buildings, such as the Karnak Temple or the Tomb of Queen Nefertari, you may have had a glimpse of the Egyptian hieroglyphs. Hieroglyphs are one of the oldest and most complicated writing forms in history. Decoding hieroglyphic inscriptions is challenging because many were damaged due to antiquity and hence became fragmentary and illegible.
Sports referees are a vital part of any game. They undergo trainings and seminars to familiarize themselves with different rules and act as a third party to assure fair play for everyone involved. However, with the advent of artificial intelligence (AI), some people wonder if this technology can eventually replace human referees altogether.
On February 21, 2022, Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, declared the independence of the Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic. Arousing international outcry, this ignited the ultimate invasion of Russia on Ukraine three days later. While Ukrainians are still defying Putin’s covetous ambitions, new technologies have been floating on the surface to take advantage of each other.
While artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are commonly used for facial recognition or creating personalized shopping experiences in e-commerce, have you thought about how they can also be used in the animation industry?
Around 130 years ago, back in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts, James Naismith invented the game of basketball. This invention has influenced millions of people. In fact, the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) estimates that at least 450 million people around the world are involved in it.
